So, yesterday I took a big step in my future: I started my Dental Assistant classes! There are only six students in the class, including myself, and I like the small size. The teacher can spend more time with each of us, and I like that all the ladies are my age or older. They seem to be more mature, but still fun loving.
School was pretty much how I remember it being: the teacher took attendance, handed out a few printed papers, then told us to open our books. We took turns reading and explanations were given for certain things that needed to be dealt with indepth. I actually rather enjoyed doing the in-classroom work. Doing ‘homework’ is always so challenging because it’s at home, and you can putz around all you want and never actually get any work done. I already turned in today’s homework yesterday before I left, and I will try to do that as often as I can to avoid distractions while at the ol’ homestead.
But otherwise, I was pleased when I left and I called my office as I was driving home. I spoke to my manager and the billing coordinator. They were pleased to hear from me and to learn that I was already pretty excited about school. I even poked a little fun at one of the doctors, who I knew would be eating his lunch around that time. It was nice. It sort of made me feel settled and calm on the inside, even though I was bursting with energy and zeal on the outside.
And on that note, it’s been real!
